Posies & Sweet Sentiments

Here are a couple cards I made using Wednesday's SCS Sketch (SC217). I used my Posies For You cling-set, one of the awesome Anna Wight cling sets from Whipper Snapper Designs, and paired it with a couple sentiments from the SASI Year of Sweet Sentiments set.

On the first one, I used Parisian Breeze DP and colors. The Kraft mats behind the posies are up on Dimensionals. Angel Wings Shimmerz was added to the posies and leaves.



...and here's the same sketch in apricot and celery with some extra black matting:



...and a close-up of the Shimmerz....I love Shimmerz!

Positively Precious Posies! But then again they're Anna Wight, so what's not to love, right?

LOVE these; they are all stunning. I need the Angel Wings Shimmerz....I've been buying my Shimmerz at My Favorite Things, but they don't have the Angel Wings. :(

Are you ready for another weekend of racing? Go Kevin & Tony.

AND I'm going to Texas Motor Speedway in April for the race - we always go in November; but my friend's husband is having back surgery in March and therefore won't be able to go in April...so doggoneit, I have to go. :D
